The Gardener


This is Khaled, one of my gardeners. I can't understand a word he says to me even though theoretically we are both speaking Arabic. He sort of mumbles a local dialect that leaves me searching for an interpreter. But he has a wonderful face and the plants like him.

I like this shot. He has the face of a man who is at peace with what he's doing.

Can't argue with a gardener who works hard and has good luck with the plants, although he sounds like someone interesting to talk to. How frustrating that can be. You've managed to capture his friendly face, however.
